Aeromask AM72-A713: Vought A-7 Corsair II




Scott Van Aken


For any appropriate 1/72 A-7 kit

This particular set from Aero Mask is for the 1/72 A-7 Corsair II. There are a variety of 1/72 A-7s out there that the modeler could use for this. Note that this scheme can be used on USAF, Portuguese, and Greek aircraft, which all wore the same camouflage schemes. 

This set of masks is like their others where you don't have to dig out the mask from the backing as Aeromask has already done that for you. Each of the masks is numbered and all you need to do is to is follow the instructions. It is not surprising that you first paint the underside  then the upper surface colors in the order shown. The instructions will guide you through it.

I have used these masks before and they really stick tight. So much so that if you have not applied the paint over primer, there is a pretty good chance you'll peel up the paint when you remove the masking. When I did the Hunter, I discovered that you have to pull these off quite slowly or you'll leave a bit of residue. This residue is easy enough to pull up with Scotch tape. While you might be able to get away with no primer when spraying lacquers. But with acrylics, primer is a must.
